Today was full of excitement! First up we met L’s gorgeous daughter Miss L (M’s step-daughter). She arrived in her adorable ballet outfit and we almost made her late for ballet as she stopped to open our gifts from Australia. Particularly appreciated were the (possibly) returning boomerang which we have yet to test and the ‘grow an emu’ egg that at last check had just begun to crack and according to Miss L will turn into a fluffy emu (not the creepy vaguely emu shaped plastic/goo that I’m expecting). While Miss L was at her ballet class we had breakfast at Brew with M and L. Miss L liked me enough to play Guess Who (she won 3:0) and hunt down every novelty animal eraser she had after ballet (too cute). I’m sure the gifts (*cough* bribes) had nothing to do with that quick acceptance =P
Next up was M’s baby shower! It was a gorgeous high tea the Haymarket Hotel. All of M’s family and friends were lovely and friendly. I think M had a great afternoon and her little one now has plenty of adorable baby clothes (amongst other adorable baby things).
